Hello, I'm looking to build my own PC for 3d modeling and gaming.
What build would be the best for the price range of 1500-2000
I use softwares such as zbrush, 3ds max, photoshop...
Take note that this would be my first time building a computer so pointers would be much appreciated!

I was all set to recommend a xeon cpu and board, but the memory issues and board compromises made me switch back to a standard system.
